MET Rishikul Vidyalaya takes pride in its eco-friendly status and has been actively involved in creating awareness among children about existing environmental issues.
Young energetic green beginners contribute in their own way to safeguard planet earth by collecting tetra pak cartons which are further recycled. We also compost wet waste into organic manure.

ANANDVAN is an annual event where our students show case their aesthetic side through performing arts. Each time, a theme is selected and a fiesta of music, dance and drama is woven around it.

Lessons in the dark is a programme by WorldKids Foundation that focuses on award winning international cinema of various genres that contributes to overall personality development, teaches life skills, builds confidence, hones communication skills, enhances lateral thinking and promotes values. It reaches out to children and young adults, with a world of compelling films that engage their imagination, spark their creativity, respect their intelligence and connect them to global culture. The screening is followed by an interactive session where the story and ideas brought forward in the film are discussed and a lot of opinions and thoughts are voiced by the young minds right from Pre-Primary to the Secondary section.
Mindspark is a computer-based adaptive learning programme by Educational Initiatives which primarily uses questions to help children learn. The questions are finely-graded meaning that there are a very large number of questions with graded difficulty level. Questions are specially designed to test understanding and to help students clear their misconceptions. There is very little emphasis on instruction due to the belief that students learn when they have to think either to answer a question, or do an activity on the computer. This learning system complements classroom instruction and adds to teaching.
We are the recipients of the prestigious award given by the British Council of India. The International School Award is given to a school that maintains a consistent standard of teaching of concepts through innovative means and introducing in each lesson an element of Internationalism. ISA required that the school takes up series of activities based on the academic and non-academic subjects of study. Our tiny tots started the ISA activities with The Wonders of the Blue Planet through pictures stories and songs and then went on to Stay Fitastic Through Sports; The primary explored the stage with self -scripted plays based on folklores and put up a grand show for their teachers and peers. The Secondary pondered on the status of Human Rights, its acceptance and violations in Syria, India, Israel, Greece, Saudi Arabia and Russia. It was no matter of surprise that MRV as usual was one of the top scorers. Our expertise in transacting the international curriculum only gets better with time and it can be seen as the ISA kite mark on our website and stationery.
Our school enterprise Challenge has been scaled up and diversified to include manufacturing of compost, preparing seedlings of medicinal plants and cleaning enzymes. Our students go a mile further by creating a booklet for public distribution on the medicinal qualities of the plants.

This is a MRV initiative to awaken in the students the love for Mathematics and Science. Every year an aspect of Math and Science is taken up by the students; the theme is extensively researched and presented by the children under the guidance of facilitators. The theme for this was Megastructures Redefined where the students intensively explored man-made structures and explained the Math and Physics principles involved in creating them.
Model United Nations (MUN) helps our students to get the feel of international diplomacy. Our students attended the Yale MUN at Yale, USA for a real time international experience. Harvard Model MUN, at Hyderabad, was also attended by our delegates. We attended Yale MUN at the prestigious Yale University, the dream of many. Now MUN across the globe has become an integral part of our annual school calendar.

The challenge has helped our students to get interested in variety of writers across genres.

MRV will be one of the first schools to offer Global Perspectives as a subject at Primary, Secondary1 and at the IGCSE level. It is a novel subject that focuses on cultivation and nurturing of the critical thinking, research, communication and collaboration skills which enables us to take our students on an appealing journey of experiential learning of finer elements of Human Social Organisation, Ethics, Logic, History, International Relations, Economics and aspirations for the future. The subject is deemed to be a subject of choice for those who wish to pursue higher studies in any field and engage positively with the rapidly changing world of the present millennium.
